Cloud and edge solutions provider G-Core Labs has unveiled its own streaming platform - a turnkey solution for live video and video-on-demand streaming that can be used to deliver video content globally.

The platform provides video transmission with a delay of up to four seconds for all streams, in HD and 4K quality.

Such broadcasts can be sent to an audience of 100+ million viewers, according to the company, and its customers can also sign up for ultra-low latency streaming.

G-Core Labs has been developing its video streaming business since 2018. With the new streaming platform that replaces the previous version of the product, we focus on three core features that are important to our customers,” said Alexey Petrovskikh (pictured), head of G-Core Labs streaming platform department.

“The first is to ensure the lowest latency in video delivery. Compared to the previous version of the platform, we have reduced the latency from 10 to 1–4 seconds, which is almost 10 times less for ultra-low-latency streaming and 2.5 times less for low-latency.

“Another important feature is providing streamlined support for all stages of broadcasting from capturing and converting a video stream to its playback. Our streaming platform provides all the tools you need, including transcoding, cloud storage, a content delivery network, and a cross-platform HTML5 player.”

Petrovskikh added that another important function of the streaming platform is reliable content protection against copying.

An important feature of the streaming platform is its integration with the G-Core Labs CDN.

The network infrastructure is represented on all continents and includes more than 100 points of presence in 65 cities around the world.

“We know it’s not easy to find a reliable vendor. And it takes even more time and effort to find several vendors and make them work together to achieve a certain goal,” added Petrovskikh.

“Therefore, a multifunctional streaming platform based on a powerful CDN is a great find for any customer.”
